It's the Chilli and Emmo show as Town win away again


A BRACE each from deadly duo Carl Chillingsworth and Adam Emson gave Town another impressive away victory at West Allotment on Saturday.

Arriving in Benton with an unbeaten away record to defend, Town manager Mark Fanning named an unchanged 16 from the squad that had played so well in drawing with leaders Ryhope the previous week.

Despite heavy rain leading up to the match, the pitch was in good condition and Town settled quickly to take control with two goals in four minutes midway through the first half.

Chillingsworth opened the scoring in the 17th minute when he arrived unmarked at the far post to turn a Wayne Gredziak cross past West goalkeeper Ryan Beal from close range, before Emson made it 2-0 four minutes later.

The former Stokesley man did well to control a long ball out of defence from Craig Winter before beating Simon Wilthew and smashing an unstoppable shot past Beal from the edge of the penalty area.

Town were now in complete control and it was very nearly 3-0 before the break when only a desperate goalline clearance from Marc Allen denied Gredziak after a great ball from Emson.

The second period followed a similar pattern as Emson and Winter both came close before Chillingsworth made the points safe with his second - and 14th goal of the season - on the hour.

Beal failed to hold a speculative cross from Steve Butterworth and Chillingsworth followed up to force the ball home at the second attempt from virtually right on the goalline.

Town continued to play some good football and had the chances to make the scoreline more emphatic. Butterworth and Emson were both denied by Beal before Emson grabbed his 21st goal of the season, two minutes from time.

Gredziak sent the 28 year old clear of the West defence and he chipped the ball over the onrushing Beal from 12 yards.

The only blot on the Town copybook was a soft goal conceded in stoppage time. Goalkeeper Steve Craggs did well to keep out an effort from West player-manager Paul Stoneman, but Sean Reid was first to react to nod the ball home from close range and it finished 4-1.

Town manager Fanning said: “"It was a good win, because West Allotment have been going well recently. We played some very good football during the game, and it was a good three points.”"
